Transfer: Accept Man Utd’s offer and leave – Barcelona tell De Jong

Senior Barcelona officials have meet with Frenkie de Jong and told him to accept Manchester United’s offer, after the two clubs agreed a fee, according to Mundo Deportivo.

United have agreed to pay £63million up front plus a further £10m in add-ons.

However, De Jong is far from convinced about moving to Old Trafford, especially as there is no Champions League football on offer.

Some officials have now spoken with De Jong on Thursday to underline their predicament.
